In anticipation of a positive response we'll likely not invest too much into an alternative. Right now I'd say we'd limit ourselves to putting it up on download.qt.io for the time being. This would be like the snapshot case today except that it is a supported and well-known package.

They do have an exception:

I wouldn't expect that to happen, all exceptions I've seen so far which
had a legitimate reason have been granted.
